Here is an stream-able excerpt of Mystery Train from the show:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxKeRx0vUGE

One of my fave JGB tapes that was lost over the years. Found a MP3 copy that's been keeping me company for the past couple of years and I decided to see if I could locate a lossless copy for those so inclined. The copy I have is from a FM broadcast and sounds like it's a multi-generation source, quite muddy at the start but then cleans up a little. Perhaps someone has an original. There is also at least one AUD of the show, but I've never heard it.

Short but very powerful show here. Perhaps my all time favorite Knockin' On Heavens Door. Jerry's solo is so freakin' beautiful it actually makes me want to repair the furniture damaged during Mystery Train. But it's a fruitless undertaking since the Tore Up does just that. Good Lawd. If this show doesn't make you get "it", you were never meant to have "it" to begin with.

So if there is at least one seeder out there and you enjoyed the Lehigh JGB show from last week, this should prove worthwhile.

I will refrain from posting a picture of what this show did to my morning commute. Such carnage is no way to start the day.

NOTE: From the picture used on the YouTube link, it appears there was at least one person videotaping the show; would love to know if anyone has a line on what happened to that.

that pic with the vid looks 70s to me, Garcia is playing the white Travis Bean, a guitar most associated with the 75-77 era, most specifically 76 with the Dead...

Ah, once again those with a better eye for detail have saved the day. One less thing to worry about, then.

Still a damn fine show.

When strat mentioned those yrs, that was "my" Jerry...I do recall, white on black was the theme, and it wasn't yet "fat-black", ya know? Grey was creeping in, but those pics from the famous GGPark show of Sept, 75, with him similing, smoking, leather jacket (typical Bay Area weather) will always be the memory I have of him.

This pic seems close to that time.

Sorry, can't track down the video (though this venue was right down the road from my E Bay haunts of many yrs past), as I am busy frying up a batch of Relict Leopard Frog kidneys, with effluvium of Vegas Valley Wash...they just aren't the same without that hint of washed up Elvis impersonators, percolated through the alluvial fan of Vegas Valley Failures...

It's a little known fact that I once spotted a Relict Leopard Frog impersonator IN the Vegas Valley Wash. Cheeky little bastard--wanted protective status, but was a bullfrog in sheep's clothing.

Outstanding.

Don't think the little critter would get the same respect if it was a toad instead of a frog. Damn toader bias!

I think your "respect" question would depend on the constituency. You ever heard of anyone licking a frog? There is a whole cult of toadlickers.

Ha--this is actually the species of choice, Bufo (Anaxyrus) alvarius, the Sonoran Desert Toad. Last seen loading up for a trip to the painted desert of Utah with SDH & co.

Constituency

...ya got yer folks represented by the frogs and on the other hand ya got the toadlickers

OK, so maybe it was a stretch of the true definition. But when have Deadheads been strict followers of convention?

One could argue that following the TOG explosion of the mid 80's, a large number of new Heads did nothing but strictly follow convention. Or at least what they perceived to be the convention necessary to be perceived as ultra-cool and getting "it".

I'm afraid this poor gentleman not only got "it", he injested "it", snorted "it", licked "it", shot "it" and smoked "it" - only to realize too late that what he thought was some primo "it", was in actuality a piece of an old Nerf footbal.

A little over a year ago I recommended this show as “one of the best '80s JGB shows,”
http://archive.org/post/398154/one-of-the-best-80s-jgb-shows

But after still not finding a better show, I hereby declare 3/7/82 as THE best '80s JGB show. I have yet to hear another show from this decade where Jerry is so ON. This show floors me every time I hear it, and I do believe it has the best Knockin' as well. 10/28/78 is a close 2nd though.

11-11-82, Early and Late at the Felt Forum were the best I ever saw Garcia play in those years, including GD. Mission, Harder They Come, Dont Let Go, all at amazing energy levels. My girlfriend and I enjoyed those small NY area tours as much as anything the Boys were doing...

I listened to Mission and Harder They Come so far. Can't wait to check out the rest. Jerry's voice sure was shot, but he more than makes up for it on guitar. Incredible playing, and nice extended solos, just how I like it. Thanks for the awesome recommendation.

I'm not sure you could handle it :-)

I know how fond you are of 9/16/89 with Clarence. While I really love that show, I definitely prefer 3/7/82. I much prefer the setlist for that show too, which also factors into the equation slightly. Keep in mind that "best" really just means "favorite," but I'm certainly open to suggestions on other "best '80s JGB shows."

Do you mean 4/10/82? That's probably my favorite acoustic show.

I haven't compared all the sources so I can't say for sure which one is best. I have this copy, and I'm very happy with it:
